Practice your craft.
I couldn't connect either.
You and your wife could tow you trailer down here for a visit (we have plenty of room and a 30amp hook up) and take mine home with you. Poor vision and bi-lateral hand surgeries have all but ended my tying. I have tons of stuff!
That's extremely kind. Remind me where you live?
Take my money.
Speaking of, headed out to the lumber yard today. Got to pick through all of their slabs. They have some pretty special pcs in their collection.
I was leaning towards Doug Fir but the slabs they had to fit my space weren't my favorite. So I ended up with pc of Hemlock. The story is that it was from a log reclaimed out of the Columbia that was used in log barges back in the old days.
It has tight rings but also a bit of character. I think it will make for a great desk top.
The guy I'm working with also showed me part of their shop. Coincidentally they were working on another pc for a guy making a tying desk using black walnut. It was beautiful but that species is a bit out of my price range. This pc of wood came from Michigan.
Not sure if you can tell but there are some large timbers in the back left of the shop. They are for a country music star's house in Nashville. I guess they do work all over the country. He didn't feel comfortable telling me who but I really didn't care. Kind of cool though. I'd love to work in a shop like this.
I'm excited to see this project come together.
